For some reason, Solidworks is not letting me use the thicken feature. I did the split line, then delete face...
I am trying to engrave the text on this circular surface.... I want an even extrude cut of .3125
use the wrap funtion
Whats wrong ?
the letters are to close on one another
this results in 0 thickness or embos that intersects use more space between the letters or numbers and it wil do what ur asking it to do
If you have text like you've shown, there's no need to split faces just cut the text offset from surface to create the cut.
Try wrap instead.
Offset a surface a distance of zero. Then cut thicken your distance. I assume you want 1/32 not 5/16?
nothing works, wrap nor thicken
At a depth of 5/16, you are bound to get an intersecting body error when using wrap or thicken.
Russell, is your text part of a sketch? Extrude it and make the end condition offset from your surface.
extrude from offset surface does not give me the results I need. The text does not wrap the circular surface..
Did you try doing each section/letter one at a time?
But the problem is that the thicken feature is not fully visible. Thus, not allowing me to use the thicken feature!
..seems to work,.. if you're doing a realistic .03" cut?
Nick youre the best!! Thank you so much! I have been trying to figure this out for a while!
You`re welcome The only reason why i know this is beacuse i struggeld with it myself
